Dark Phoenix

Dark Phoenix
Medium: Watercolor
Size: 11x18 inches

A proliferation of wings in these recent pieces. One more winged piece to come, after I finish the knotwork commission. This piece btw a commission as well, and a pleasure to work on. I've been painting up a storm lately, getting as much work done as I can in anticipation that dedicated painting time might be an uncertain thing and in short supply in a few weeks. The new member of the household is due to be born pretty much at any time now. We're eagerly awaiting her arrival!


  1. Hi Stephanie. I've been following your blog for quite sometime now. Thank you very much for writing about how you create your wonderful masterpieces.

    Good luck on your upcoming labor. Congrats in advance to you and your hubby :)

  2. Beautiful. I'm really loving the ravens. You have used this raven technique in a few of your pieces. I just can't get enough of them. ;)

  3. Knew it'd be better than I imagined ;)

  4. Thanks!

    And yes, I have been doing that ravens-fading-into-the-background thing for a few pieces. Sort of being absorbed by the atmosphere.

  5. Hello !

    I was waiting for your Dark Phoenix since I saw the sketch of it on your blog... !!!
    It is really beautiful, and purple is my favourite colour, so you can imagine how much I enjoy looking at your work !
    I love the little characters who are sitting behind the tree !
    All the details are really successful, and it was a real pleasure to discover the result of your work today !

    Thank you for sharing this with us !
